When I was 15 I met my first boyfriend, Paul. We parted four years later while both at different universities. I moved to London in 1969, knowing nothing of Paul since 1962. I married, he married and that was that until 1979 when I got a call out of the blue from Paul. Now he didn't know my married name and didn't know where I was in the UK. But when he became CEO of a company in Zug, Switzerland, he often came to meetings in the UK. On the off-chance, during one visit he looked up my maiden name, V. Valentine, in the telephone directory.
